The primary goal of many companies is to make profit — but should it be? A new social movement is advocating for a reevaluation of our economic model: encouraging companies to work towards the common good rather than to compete for financial gain. Thousands of companies are already on board, with hundreds implementing its first steps. Can this be the shift our society needs to find sustainability in an economically unstable world? Join us and author Christian Felber to discuss this project and his book Change Everything: Creating an Economy for the Common Good.
